One day after landing a top-60 nationally ranked recruit, Iowa football has added another highly-touted prospect to its quickly growing 2021 class.

Arland Bruce, a three-star receiver out of the Kansas City area, announced his commitment to the Hawkeyes via Twitter on Tuesday. He also held offers from Iowa State, Tulsa and Western Illinois.

The 247Sports Composite gives Bruce, who checks in at 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds, three stars. It ranks No. 692 among 2021 prospects and No. 58 among 2021 athletes.

Bruce becomes Iowa's 13th known recruit in the 2021 class. He is the first receiver recruit in the class and the first offensive skill position recruit, too.
